Dumont Dunes

I took the Teryx and three kids out to the dunes just for the day. It was 8 hours of total driving time for about the same amount of time out in the dunes, but it was totally worth it. The Teryx did great and the kids had a blast .

The stock power is great for the tight OHV trails and is even okay out in the desert, but the dunes is another level. The Teryx would go just about everywhere, but you need to plan and pick your spots. I can really see now why guys that ride out in the sand need the big bore kits, exhausts and the other performance stuff. I also see the stability benefits of the long travel kits for actually riding around "Duning."

Glad to hear it was good for you. If you are looking to go to the dunes alot there are a few items I have had good luck with.

Doonz tires front and rear
Spacers (1.5" front, 2" rear)
Real harness seat belts

Then, go for a Std. bore kit from FST
He has them on sale now, and would make a huge difference.
You would need a controller if yours is an 09.

Good luck.
